Slide3 l.jpg

  • Today’s students have been exposed to digital and video images all of their lives.

  • The need for visual literacy skills rivals the need for traditional literacy.

  • Activities and projects completed with digital images compliment all curriculum areas and most learning styles, especially visual and kinesthetic.


Slide4 l.jpg

  • Digital photography activities are not about taking pictures, but using the camera as a tool to help you explore and understand other subjects.

  • Activities and projects do not have to be fancy, long, expensive, or even pretty. They only have to capture the attention and enthusiasm of our children.


Slide5 l.jpg

  • The use of digital cameras and images also addresses the point that technology is merely a tool we use to educate our children.

  • We should bend technology to meet our needs instead of letting it drive our activities. Our main goal as teachers is to help students learn the curriculum.


Slide6 l.jpg

  • Digital pictures are immediate, versatile, colorful, interactive and successfully engage the attention of students.

  • The products of these lessons are wonderful tools for reinforcement and review.

  • Using digital cameras will stimulate and motivate both students and teachers. The subjects that this technology can be used with are limited only by the imagination.


Requirements l.jpg
Requirements interactive and successfully engage the attention of students.


Slide8 l.jpg

  • The majority of activities presented in this session can be completed with as little as one camera, computer and printer set-up or with a lab full of equipment.

  • You do not even really need a digital camera. You can scan existing prints and create a CD or request a CD when you have your film developed.


Slide9 l.jpg

  • The basic word processor and picture viewers that come pre-loaded on most computers can be used to replicate these projects (ex. Note Pad, Word Pad, Microsoft Photo Editor & Media Player or iPhoto & iLife). Picasa is also a great photo editing tool.

  • You can also use KidPix, Kidspiration, and Inspiration for many of these activities.

When to Take Pictures Caption the pictures with the translations for each language spoken by your students. Common phrases can also be added.

  • Take a camera everywhere and build a stock photo library. Appoint class photographers to capture classroom activities for use in newsletters, web pages, etc. Also, take the camera on field trips to document the experience!

  • Have older students move the pictures into category folders


Slide61 l.jpg

  • Take pictures of each step in any procedure and number them.  This is especially helpful in learning centers and during experiments since they allow students to see what they need to do.

  • Try to take pictures for several projects at the same time. Split the students into groups. While one group is setting up the next can be taking pictures, etc. This makes it easier with only one camera.


Being prepared l.jpg
Being Prepared  This is especially helpful in learning centers and during experiments since they allow students to see what they need to do.

  • Always have extra charged batteries, floppy disks and/or memory cards. Our oldest Sony Mavica came with a separate charger which comes in really handy. Check around your school to see if you have one.

  • Use cameras with straps and insist the students let them hang around their necks so that will be safe from dropping.


Slide63 l.jpg

  • Train the students on how to use the cameras in very small groups. It is helpful to let them take pictures and then go over them together as a large group to discuss which shots are the best and why.

  • You can adjust cameras to take smaller, but still great pictures so that you have plenty of memory on trips.


Taking the pictures l.jpg
Taking the Pictures groups. It is helpful to let them take pictures and then go over them together as a large group to discuss which shots are the best and why.

  • Place the photos that the kids have taken into PowerPoint (or other programs) and have the students add any necessary captions, etc.

  • You can also opt to take the pictures for students to add to, manipulate, etc.

Perfect publish share l.jpg
Perfect, Publish This forces them to be more discerning about what they photograph. & Share


Publish with powerpoint l.jpg
Publish with PowerPoint This forces them to be more discerning about what they photograph.

  • Print your pictures in different sizes for books and mini-posters

  • Videotape for playback via TV

  • Publish on your school web page.

  • Create a Movie Maker document to make the images come to life for the kids.


Slide68 l.jpg

  • Train your students to complete sections of the process. Have a photographer, printer, author, etc.

  • With younger students it is best to create a template for the actual project. Save copies in several places on a network drive for when someone invariably saves their blank page on top of the template.

  • Sound can be easily added to most presentations.


Slide69 l.jpg


Slide70 l.jpg

  • Tape all of the multimedia presentations you create and show them on your school’s closed-circuit cable system as “subliminal” messages.

  • Post your photos on a free site so students and parents can view them from home. Make sure to follow legal protocol and get permission from your principal before doing this, though.

Printers l.jpg
Printers video to complete these projects.

Any printer will work. The 2 most common are:

  • Color Inkjet Printer   (Fast-Draft)

  • Laser Printer - black and whites prints are even preferable with some projects


4x6 photo printer l.jpg
4x6 Photo Printer video to complete these projects.

  • Slots for memory cards

  • Easy uploading and sharing of pictures.

  • Works without a computer


Slide75 l.jpg

  • Activities can be done with print-outs or on computers. There is nothing wrong with using paper and glue with your photos. The actual physical manipulation is a big plus for some students.

  • Scanners can be used to create collages that illustrate many of the same topics as these activities.


Slide76 l.jpg

  • Depending on the project there are some fairly inexpensive photo papers. Often the dollar store has it.

  • You can also use paper preprinted with a relevant design to print your pictures (i.e. use a fall theme to publish such projects as: Shape Jack-‘O-Lanterns, Wanted –Turkey’s, or elements of fall).

  • Use plastic page protectors and report covers to publish materials.
